Nijhout Lab Brings Insects to Perkins Library
Graduate students Kenneth McKenna and Rick Gawne have brought some of the Nijhout lab's many specimens to the atrium of Perkins Library, demonstrating the immense diversity of the insect world. The display in the Jerry and Bruce Chappell Family Gallery describes the migration of the Monarch butterfly, metamorphosis, camouflage and many other aspects of the insect world. Gawne and McKenna said that they used the library often in their research, and wanted to do something that would bring people in. The exhibit is now the subject of a feature article in Duke Today, and will be open through October 15.
